This summer is supposed to be epic.
New sister. New family. Same crew.
The only thing I didn’t count on was her.
Lux brings with her a whole new set of issues, danger, and bodies trailing our wake.
When lines blur, my own self worth is tested.
Being abandoned at a young age made me used to being alone. I had no-one until my best-friends came along and saved me, making them the only family I know.
At first I’m cautious, but Lux soon becomes a target I’m determined to keep safe.
A friend, I never thought I’d have. A liar, I never thought I’d needed.
When lies and betrayal wrap us in darkness, neither of us will escape the storm.
The summer was all the time I was given to earn my freedom.
What started as a ruse, quickly becomes a fight for my life.
I don’t want to lie.
I don’t want to betray everyone who makes me feel at home.
I refuse to hurt Silas.
He’s broken, damaged, and deadly. The type of man a girl should run from.
But I always loved a challenge.
To escape the storm, we’ll have to trust in the one thing that has always let us down…love.

I love these Midwest Boys and their girls. I fell in love with Silas right from the first glimpse of him in the first book. What can I say…I love the bad boys and he was the worst. Such a player but he always had the backs of his guys. Silas is a force as one of the new generation of incredible folks that are the leaders of Rogue, the secret organization that hides and defends those on the run from evil. And there’s a new evil out to destroy Rogue from the inside. Ugh, so many enemies so little time! There’s a continuation of the storyline from previous stories with some keys folks in jeopardy and the danger ever present. All the kids are back with Ciaran and Saylor stronger than ever but Kai has a bad moment with Oaklynn. And then there’s new girl Lux/Raina. She’s has a secret that impacts Rogue. Lux catches Silas’ eye and she’s a goner for him. Can’t blame the girl. He’s always been anti relationship so I was a little surprised that he fell so quickly. The romance between the two was a little quick for me and I didn’t get a real sense of Lux until later in the story. If you didn’t read the previous books you would probably be lost with the on-going intrigue and wouldn’t really know Silas. The suspense rolled along and ramped up with the jaw dropping ending. This one didn’t have the pop and sizzling of the previous stories but I’m all in with this series and can’t wait for the next installment. I really love the action and danger as the mystery unfolds and the Rogue hunks jump into the fray. Terrific series!

Well, that escalated quickly. I really hope he’s not a stalker or has some sick fascination with this girl. I don’t want to be responsible for placing a girl in the same position I found myself in a few weeks ago. I do not know her and he seems adamant about me only checking in on her.
“Deal,” I mutter, before I can convince myself to back out. My eyes slam closed, and my head bows until my chin hits my chest. I’ve either just made the biggest mistake of my life, or one that will keep me safe, out of harm’s way. Something inside me already feels lighter. There’s a crackle of energy bouncing in my rib cage that wasn’t there before. Let’s hope that means I made the right decision for the girl and for me.
